Ultra-Precise Movement – Proportional Thumbwheels

APEM expands its range of proportional thumbwheels with a new, friction hold version.

apem_hrApem HR Friction Hold – PATENTED TECHNOLOGY

This new patented technology allows for ultra-precise movement while allowing the user to hold the selection in a set position.

The Apem HR series uses proven non-contacting Hall effect sensor technology, independent from the friction mechanism, providing a smooth and precise linear voltage output that does not degrade over time.

Therefore, this new thumbwheel is particularly adapted for speed control on a handle.

TWO VERSIONS TO FIT YOUR NEEDS

  • One with 11 detents along the travel (1 at center and 5 on each side)
  • Another with a center detent, smooth movement on each side and providing a feel of friction hold without detents.

Frontally sealed to IP68, the friction hold HR series is available with 2 actuator styles, a wide range of colors and optional backlighting.
